9th - Gareth Bale

The Welsh winger became the most expensive player in history when he moved to the Santiago Bernabeu in an £87million deal from Tottenham Hotspur during the summer.

After a standout season which saw him score 26 goals and make 11 assists at White Hart Lane, Bale earned himself a big-money move to the Primera Division giants, and he's maintained his level with 10 goals and eight assists already in 2013/14.
